Serving birthing people during their childbearing years has been a passion of mine since my very first doula training in July of 2015! I continue to be inspired by the strength and courage I see each time a new life comes into this world. I consider doula work to be my most important work and feel a deep calling helping birthing people feel confident and supported in their choices surrounding labor and birth.
My doula journey began in my hometown of St. Louis, and I moved to Seattle in August of 2016. I completed over 30 hours of training at the Simkin Center for Allied Birth Vocations in February of 2017 and am currently certifying through DONA.
In addition to supporting growing families as a doula, I am also in the marketing department at Bastyr University. I graduated from Lindenwood University in 2014 with dual degrees in Mass Communications and English Literature. I feel lucky every day to work for a company as passionate about maternal child health care as I am.
My hobbies include hiking with my husband Rob, fixing up our new home, reading several books at a time and checking out the Seattle improv and theatre scene.
When it comes to your birth, what are your fears? What are your hopes and preference? As your doula, I will help you navigate through these questions and more in the hopes that you and your family feel supported and empowered. I look forward to meeting with you!
